War in Ukraine kills at least 4,509 civilians - UN

Conflicts A- A A+

Since the beginning of the Russian Federation's war against Ukraine on February 24, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) recorded 10,094 civilian casualties in the country: 4,509 killed and 5,585 injured,  OHCHR reports.

This included: a total of 4,509 killed (1,747 men, 1,166 women, 124 girls, and 129 boys, as well as 41 children and 1,302 adults whose sex is yet unknown); a total of 5,585 injured (1,138 men, 792 women, 125 girls, and 166 boys, as well as 172 children and 3,192 adults whose sex is yet unknown)

OHCHR believes that the actual figures are considerably higher, as the receipt of information from some locations where intense hostilities have been going on has been delayed and many reports are still pending corroboration. This concerns, for example, Mariupol (Donetsk region), Izium (Kharkiv region), Popasna, Lysychansk, and Sievierodonetsk (Luhansk region), where there are allegations of numerous civilian casualties.

"Most of the civilian casualties recorded were caused by the use of explosive weapons with a wide impact area, including shelling from heavy artillery and multiple launch rocket systems, and missile and air strikes," the organization noted.
